Great food and service, but overpriced (f.i. 6 too thin sliced sashimi pieces). We didn’t like the poor lightning.

Lunch was excellent and so was the service. Dress code seems to be lousy or not existing.
Two guests in sport dress, sport shoes, t- resp. muscle shirt and shorts were not to our taste.
The IZAKAYA should not give admittance to guests in a look like Thies.

Izakaya really jazzed up the Asian fusion stakes in HH. Hurrah! The food and drinks are excellent, everything from the baked ribs and yellow tail sashimi to what I recall being a "Tokyo trash" cocktail. The use of ponzu and huacaina sauces is judicious. The sexy bathrooms remind me of the Ivy and are a throwback to the 70s and 90s in a good way. in the early evening hours it is good for business meetings where you actually need to have a conversation. Oddly enough we have been there several times and it has never been full.In terms of homework, there really is not much room for improvement. We are sure they are just growing pains but even during off-peak time, the drinks are slow in coming despite the waitstaff's good cheer. While we appreciate the friendly and good-looking wait-staff, we find explaining the already detailed menu is superfluous. Izakaya is a sophisticated place and we imagine most of your customers are too.

Phantastic, creative cuisine in a metropolitan, extremely stylish setting with superfriendly and helpful staff (we got a small sake lesson!) The kitchen is more japanese than south-american, but with some spicy influences. Very, very tasteful! It is pricy, but it is worth the price. Highly recommended!

Stühle waren leider sehr unbequem. Der schöne Bereich war nicht geöffnet, sodass wir in dem Bereich der Küche Platz genommen haben. Die Stühle (Drehstühle) waren so unbequem wie lange nicht mehr in einem Restaurant erlebt. Schade, Essen ear nämlich sehr gut.

Schwacher AnfAng: wir hatten einen Standardtisch bestellt und uns wurde gesagt: entweder ihr wartet 30 min oder ihr sitzt am Hochtisch oder einem langen Gemeinschaftstisch. Das war unangemessen, besonders da bei der Reservierung die Optionen abgefragt wurden.

Das Essen war gut aber wir haben in anderen deutschen und internationalen - auch hochpreisigen - Städten schon bessere Omakase Menues zu vergleichbaren Preisen bekommen.

Ich würde das Izakaya wirklich gerne weiterempfehlen, allerdings kann ich das nicht ruhigen Gewissens. Das Preis-Leistung Verhältnis stimmt einfach überhaupt nicht! Es ist viel viel zu teuer (im Vergleich auch zu anderen Restaurants dieser Kategorie). Und die Portionen sind Mini. Schade, denn geschmacklich einwandfrei! Nur leider macht es keinen Spaß wenn man auf Preise guckt...

Wunderbares, phantasievolles Essen. Vieles spannend und unerwartet. Mache Fusion etwas gestelzt (zB der Hummer mit Wasabi-Pfeffersoße) oder übertrieben (die frittierte Auster mit Beluga Kaviar: Soviel Teig um die Auster und so lange frittiert, das es mir vorkam, es wäre keine Auster drin?!)

Insgesamt sehr empfehlenswert!

This could not be called music, it was boum, boum beat all the time in the background. A rhythm against the heartbeat and in contrast to the slowly arriving food. It was good you had time to enjoy the different tastes but very disturbing in the background. Try something less overpowering and keep it low!!!!

Place is very nice as well as the ambiance, but it is way overpriced for what it is. The food is really good, but not as great as the price level would suggest.
Service is super!

Eine überzeugende und gelegentlich (angenehm) überraschende japanisch-peruanische Küche und sehr freundliches Personal. (Einen kleinen Punktabzug gibt es für die unnötigen und zu lauten Live-Musikaufleger am Freitagabend.)

Zweiter Besuch im Izakaya und im Vergleich zum ersten Mal eine herbe Enttäuschung.
Das Essen im großen und ganzen gut allerdings wurden auch 2 Gerichte komplett in den Sand gesetzt.
Der Service ist eine Katastrophe, Gerichte werden zu unterschiedlichen Zeiten und unterschiedlicher Zahl gebracht, keine Unterstützung bei der Weinauswahl trotz mehrfacher Nachfrage.
Das wäre alles hinnehmbar wenn die Preise nicht wie im 2 Sterne Restaurant ausfallen würde.

The food was absolutely delicious, Japanese with a Peruvian twist. Unusual tastes, a real delight. A very positive aspect is that it‘s not too loud, so that a conversation is possible without shouting.
